20 years ago today, Buddy and I brought a beautiful baby boy into our family. I had no way of knowing how much joy he would bring us. He has given us much love and laughter. Bo, you are my hero. I love you. Happy birthday my sweet boy.

Every once in a great while, you meet someone who immediately takes up space in your heart and lives. That’s how it was when we met these two beautiful ladies, Jessica Rehn and Jo Ann Mills Miller and their husbands! ! They have completely embraced Bo. Thank you from my Momma’s heart for being such a blessing to Bo. You guys always bring a smile to his face…priceless!! Thank you for making his birthday so special!!

Please pray for Bo today. Buddy took him to the ER. Having pain and a nosebleed that we can’t stop. Please continue to pray for his blood and platelet levels. Thank you.

This was part of my devotion this morning.
“Jesus Comes to You in Your Storm”
What does Jesus do when you’re at your moment of desperation? Mark 6:48 says, “About three o’clock in the morning Jesus came toward them, walking on the water” (NLT). Notice he didn’t tell the disciples to come to him. He knew they couldn’t get to him. He went to them. When you’re at that point of desperation, Jesus comes to you!
I love the fact that Jesus did not stand on the shore and shout instructions. When you’re in a storm, you don’t need advice. You need a miracle! You need somebody to show up, and this is what Jesus did. He intervened in the disciples’ storm.
This is the Gospel — that God doesn’t stand on the shoreline telling us what to do. He comes out and meets us in our pain, our fear, our depression, our storm, and our discouragement. He comes to us. What a God!
You may feel abandoned right now, but you’re not. The Bible says in John 14:18, “I will not abandon you or leave you as orphans in the storm — I will come to you” (LB). You can count on it!

Bo is being admitted tonight for a blood transfusion and platelets. It was either tonight or tomorrow so we figured it would be easier to have it done tonight while Bo sleeps and it can be done slowly. Please pray for God’s hand on Bo’s body and for his bone marrow to start producing double time. Thank you for your prayers and support.
